1) What are the Matrix's abilities? Can she simply replicate nano-robots inifinately? Or can she crank out toaster ovens, listen in on police broadcasts and surf the WWW?
2) Does the Matrix really want to do good, or does she think that the "law" that Dingo told her about was merely a missing peice of her programming?
The most interesting thing about your questions to me is that you identified Matrix as a she. This never occurred to me, since Matrix was voiced by Jim Cummings in "Walkabout" and by Jeff Bennett in "Bad Guys". Also, Matrix's basic body shape was male, i.e. there's no sense of female mamary glands in the design. Still, even with all that there's no particular reason to identify it as male. Hmmmm.....
2. At first, just the latter.
In "The Price," after Hudson escapes Xanatos's dungeon, Xanatos bitterly comments that he now has no one to test the Cauldron of Life's magic on. Ever the good servant, Owen volunteers and sticks his hand into the cauldron without a second thought.
Now, I know Xanatos isn't the most practical being on Earth, but couldn't he have just dipped one of his little lab animals into the brew, or even one of his lower-level lackeys?
Owen didn't give him the chance. I think Owen was feeling a little jealous of Xanatos' praise of the Macbeth robot. He dived right in, so to speak.
Of course, both men knew that "Owen" really had nothing to lose by dipping his hand. That's why both had such mild reactions to Owen's hand turning into stone.
Hope you're alright and survived the GWT well. ;)
Here's my question: it's about the aging of Gargoyles. We all know they live longer than humans, but e.g. in "Awakening", the whole Clan Wyvern is seen, but there's no Gargoyles as old as Goliath and Angela look in "Grief". Do they die fighting before they get that old, or do they never after all?
Thank you for your time!
In the Dark Ages, it was rare that a gargoyle lived into old age. It was a violent time. But also, lets remember that Wyvern had a clan of about 40 gargoyles and beasts. We didn't get to see them all. We barely saw a quarter of them.
Probably irrelevent, but... In Reawakening, when Xanatos says "It's alive! Aliiiive! I've always wanted to say that." does Demona know what he's talking about, or does she just think he's being goofy. In other words, does she get the reference?
It's probably funnier if she doesn't.
Hello mr. Weisman!
In "Eye of the Beholder", Xanatos used put a transmitter on Goliath to find him. Does that mean that Xanatos knew that the Gargoyles lived in the Clock Tower, since the transmitter was still attach on Goliath until the next day?
I'd have to look at the episode again, but I think you have the timing off. I think he planted the transmitter earlier Halloween night.
In watching Bushido, I noticed among other things that the village/town of Ishimura seemed to be located in a fairly flat area of Japan, not located among many hills or mountains. Living in the country for a while, it seemed to me that a tiny away place like that would be somewhere up in the mountains...
Therefore I was wondering how much researching of other countries was done for these Avalon-traveling episodes?
Quite a bit, but I don't know that I agree with your assessment of Ishimura's locale. Gary Sperling wrote and researched that show. Not everything makes it onto the screen, but we try...
Hi mr. Weisman!
Here are my impressions on the lost moments of "Hunter's Moon 3". First, it was the missing link. When we saw Elisa, Matt and Maria Chavez talking, Elisa was angry toward Jason. At the dam we saw Elisa trying to stop Goliath and Jason. I always wondered why she wasn't angry anymore toward Jason; the lost moment explained all.
It most have shocked Elisa, falling in love with someone who was gonna kill her friends, espacially Goliath. If Elisa shot Jason or called for backup, the incident at the dam could have been prevented, but her heart told her otherwise. The lost moment really took me; this is probably the most dramatic scene since Broadway's "death" in Future Tense. Shame I had to imagine the whole scene in my mind.
It killed me to cut that scene. It was beautifully written and it contained the theme of the whole three-parter in a nutshell. And full of emotion.
But I had no choice. There was nothing else I could cut...
I noticed there was considerable space between "Enter Macbeth" and the "City Of Stone" miniseries that explained his and Demona's history. Was it your intention to keep us guessing or did the storyline just work out that way?
Are those options mutually exclusive?
In CITY OF STONE 3 Owen mentions that he and Xanatos should search the Grimorium for a solution. But at that point Xanatos didn't have the book in his possession plus Goliath is stone so he can't ask him to get it for them. Did he have a copy of the Grimorium somewhere in his possession that he could search through?
I'd have to look at the episode again, but they may have been discussing options, some of which would have to wait until Goliath woke up.
Hello mr. Weisman!
1.You said that cetain scenes of "Avalon part 2" had been cutted because the episode was too long. Will tell us what was those missing scenes?
2.Why the Archmage chose Demona and MacBeth as allies?
1. Stuff with the Archmage-Plus mentoring the original Archmage and guiding the Weird Sisters.
2. His "future" self told him too.
